I’ve been using cuda on linux for some time, and I’ve just gotten a new computer that comes with Windows Vista. I thought I would see if I can get cuda running. I do not have a copy of visual studio, and prefer to code in cygwin using xemacs as an editor.
However, now that I’ve installed the 2.0 beta driver, toolkit and sdk. I cannot compile. Here is the output I’m getting when I enter the command:
$ nvcc mc.cu -ccbin "c:\cygwin\bin" nvcc fatal : nvcc cannot find a supported cl version. Only MSVC 7.1 and MSVC 8.0 are supported
I get the same error if I run this from the windows command prompt
c:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK\projects\MCGPU>nvcc mc.cu -ccbin c:\cygwin\bin\ nvcc fatal : nvcc cannot find a supported cl version. Only MSVC 7.1 and MSVC 8.0 are supported
So do have to use MSVC or is there another version of gcc I can use? Just need some clarity on the issue. Surely there is someone else who uses cygwin and gcc in order to compile their cuda code in Windows vista?
